A bit about us...

We are a coffee company based in the North East of England. We have a cafe in Oxford and a number of mobile coffee units that we take to events and hire out for private functions. Along side this, for the last 2 years, we have been planning on taking roasting back to its origins.

We also supply our coffee to a number of cafes as well as to our retail customers via our website. Our aim has been to design, and build, a roaster that will enable us to roast our coffee over open fire. We wanted to do things differently! We wanted to take coffee roasting back to its traditional roots by roasting over open fire, just as it has been through out the ages, and offering coffee lovers the chance to come and exerience coffee roasting traditionally for themselves.

Covid-19 effects...

Before COVID-19, we had plans in place to build our roaster in Februrary/March however, we had to put this on hold due to Coronavirus. We've had over £12,000 in event bookings cancelled in just over two weeks plus we took the hard decision to close our cafe in Oxford before the government shut down all coffee shops. With Oxford being a large tourist destination, and also attracts a lot of international students, we took this decision to protect our staff and customers from the virus.

We are still able to supply our customers with our coffee through postal and contactless deliveries. 

How you can help...

We are asking for your help. You can do this by making a donation to pay it forward! Purchasing our coffee that is available now or by being one of the first to have our fire roasted coffee sent to your door. 

Pay it forward...

We have a selection of coffee available for you to purchase for key workers. We think there are some incredible people out there, selflessly, putting others first. If you would like to give something back to a key worker, from NHS staff to school teachers, shop workers and the police, £25 we buy a selection of our coffee delivered straight to their door or work place to keep them caffinated and make them smile. 

More about our coffee roaster...

We like to keep things local so we will be using local suppliers and local tradesmen for our build. We have the building, we have the plans, designed by a local teesside engineer, now we need your help to make it happen. 

By purchasing our coffee, now, you will be helping us to invest in the materials and build of our roaster which will be the only one of its kind in the UK! The best bit - You get to be the first people to try our fire roasted coffee. Everyone who pledges their support to our business will receive some of our coffee.

R & D...

Once we have our roaster up and running we want to develop a no waste policy and we intend to create a circle of  zero waste. To do this we want to collect your spent coffee grounds. Once collected, we will dry them, turn them into coffee logs and this will become our fuel for roasting. 

We also intend to use the excess heat produced by our roaster to generate heating and power for the roasting house.

This is a scary time for us, even more so because of the pandemic, but someone once said "if your dreams do not scare you, they are not big enough". We would love for you to join us on our journey.
